    19000 steps along the river to the park, round the park and back again. Positive effects offset by stopping for a small icecream.

    I'm finally getting back to my pre-March 2020 levels of walking. A whole combination of factors contributed to a distinct lack of enthusiasm for walking in the outside world which I'm not going to rehash here, just noting it!

    Here's hoping the enthusiasm remains as I definitely feel so much better, on so many levels, for re-introducing those routines back to my life.

    Joined the 500 lb (230 kg) deadlift club on Monday. A year ago it was 485 lb (220 kg) -incorrectly calculated at 225.

    I set this target a year or so ago for 3 reasons: 1. 500 people a week die of diabetes, or the complications of, in the UK, this is very symbolic for me. 2. I wanted to show that it is possible to obtain a decent strength level on Keto, as a senior novice, with minimal but focused effort. 3. I like a challenge and wanted to show my children that I might be out of step with 1 foot in the grave, but not ready to go quietly yet.

    Amazing! That’s some real weight right there! Inspirational!

    BTW. What are you doing for recovery, I.e. meals? I found I need about 50grams of carbs post workout to aid in recovery or I seem to get overtrained. All my other meals are no carbs. Just wondering if you have some sort of recovery plan

    Thanks. It was not technically my best lift on video review. It was good for the first three quarters, tension was good, broke from the floor well, fast pull up the knees....then almost lost the lift at lock out. I can see that I allowed the bar to move forward off vertical and was terrible with the hip follow through, so the lock out was a fight. Over the next few months I am going to work between 180 and 200 and focus on the discipline throughout the entire movement.

    Thanks. My regime for the day was to ensure a very good sleep the night before, totaling 8 hours (fitbit score 83). Breakfast was egg protein bread sandwiches (Maria Emmerich), with left over rolled beef with philadelphia cream cheese, followed by several nuts, street picked blackberries, raspberries, lidl 95% dark chocolate and 2 generous scoops of full fat Greek yogurt.
    Did sort of home workout at rpe of 6 for 15 mins in the late morning

    Thought about matching my 220 last year, then toyed with 240, settled mentally on 230. Went to the gym warmed up with Karate, 100 kg warm up deadlifts, 5 x 150 (should have done 3), 1 x 180. Then pulled the 230.

    Post workout meal was the steak dinner below

    Tuesday recovery:
    Listened to my wife who is a Physio. Light Karate workout at the gym, whirlpool and sauna.

    Wednesday: 15 k steps, Karate, pulse lunges, leg curls, bicep curls, upright rows.

    Today: Literally about to walk, then Karate. Planning bench pressing in the afternoon, walking after dinner.
    I will then start next week on X3 bar lifting and over time do more hex bar.
